Gareth SouthgateEngland Manager Gareth Southgate congratulates Lancaster and Morecambe College on their funding success.

Lancaster and Morecambe College are celebrating after being awarded a £3000 Grow the Game grant, something that has attracted praise from England Manager Gareth Southgate.

The grant, which will provide a boost to our football provision at the college, has paved the way for LMC to develop two new disability football teams. The funding will provide us with lots of new equipment, new playing kits and help upskill our coaching workforce.

England Men’s Senior Manager and Football Foundation Ambassador, Gareth Southgate, said: “I am so pleased that Lancaster and Morecambe College has secured this Grow the Game grant. The college has worked very hard with Lancashire Football Association and the Football Foundation to get more students playing football, so that they can enjoy the many physical and mental benefits that come with playing regular sport.

“Grow the Game is mainly funded by The FA and delivered by the Football Foundation. This is money that is flowing from the very top of the game down to the lowest levels, to help clubs at the grassroots to bear the cost of starting up a new team, whether it be for a new kit, pitch hire or sending volunteers on FA accredited coaching courses.”

Grow the Game is a £2.5m programme funded by The FA and the Football Foundation. It awards grants to grassroots football clubs that wish to create new teams, especially amongst under-represented groups.

£1,500 is available to help FA-affiliated clubs with the cost of creating a new team, which might include the cost FA coaching courses; FA league affiliation costs; referees’ fees; first aid kits; and even football kit & equipment. 

Adam Cowperthwaite, College Sports Maker at Lancaster and Morecambe College, said: "This funding is fantastic news for Lancaster and Morecambe College. It will really boost our provision for students with disabilities which will benefit lots of young people. We try to provide our students with as many opportunities as possible to become more physically active and this money will enable more of our students with disabilities to access weekly football training sessions, along with the opportunity to compete in Lancashire FA’s recreational football league."
